The Benefits of Spray Foam for Your Brooklyn Property
There are several advantages to using spray foam over other types of insulation.
Spray foam expands upon contact. This expansion is useful in tight spaces where corners, floor bases, and ceilings have to be sealed tightly. Spray foam's R-value (the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating power) is often at a 6 or higher. The thick layer of foam along the walls gives it superior insulation capability.
Air is not the only element that invades your home. Water and moisture can also creep in through the walls or the floor. Spray foam ensures that your home is water tight. It creates a tremendous amount of pressure against any surface. This pressure does not allow water to pass through. The result is a dry area that is free from humidity, moisture, or mold.
In most environments, spray foam can last as long as the building it's protecting. Once spray foam hardens it is powerfully resistant to extreme temperature, moisture, the wind, and other conditions. Its longevity makes it ideal for all applications including waterproofing, fireproofing, and soundproofing any building. During its lifetime it will require little maintenance. We suggest an inspection about every 3-5 years. If you need your spray foam, insulation inspected contact Foam Insulation Solutions today.
Many property owners today are concerned about the long-term environmental effects of the materials that go into their home or commercial building. Spray foam is good for the environment and energy reduction. It protects your building from moisture and mold, utilizes fewer consumed materials, and helps reduce energy costs throughout your building's interior.
